With just a quick reading my first comment would be to leave the DNS stuff until later ( part 4?) Instead would add the hostnames to the /etc/hosts file.

Thank you for your response. I could gather such responses and fine tune the tutorial to make it more userfriendly.

Also thanks to LinuxQustions.org for accepting the tutorial.

learning how o write scripts

Hello everyone I'm Arty I'm currently in the Intro to linux and I can't figure out how to write a simple script called reverse63. That reverse's the order of output 1 2 3; 3 2 1 I know the first line Is #!/bin/bash, I can't get passed here .

My intention is NOT to do that. I am aiming at people who want an easy way out. I am aiming at getting Linux into small home/office networks without bringing in too much technicality. I want them to switch from Windoze to Linux. There are too many people out there who want to use GUI and DON'T want to use the terminal. Many of them don't switch to Linux because they think everything needs to be configured via the terminal.

Yeah. We need all the help! Thanks for the link (it will help Debian users)
I'd be happier, if someone could shorten (and split) that up, and change the considerable amount of technicality to simplewords.
Although I'm able to understand it perfectly it is still too technical for the common man. We have to remember the ratio of comp engineers w.r.t. rest of the world. We want the rest of the world to use Linux, don't we?

My Red Hat menu doesn't have System Settings > Server Settings > Samba. Samba wasn't installed (or at least I couldn't tell it was installed) so I installed it with yum install samba. What now?

- Distro: Fedora Core 2

I assume people would install the GUI based managers that comes with the Fedora CDs.
In the package manager (add/remove applications), you could choose the appropriate admin/system UI tools.
Well, if you know how to use yum, then should know how to use the terminal. Ask some guru to help you.

Hi there, echo 77,

I was reading through your howto, and I thought that there are some things missing. When you state the problem you say that you want to be able to connect to the internet with both computers. But later in the text you don't mention this at all. For your setup (internet <---> Tom <---> Jerry), Tom needs two NICs and you also have to do FORWARD:ing and SNAT:ing in Tom to get Jerry through to the internet.

Well, just some thoughts

Yeah, I did not get time to complete it. The internet and printer setup isn't there. It was lying around for more than a month so I just thought of posting the incomplete how-to. It has got a good number of responses, though...
I'll try to complete it when I have the time...

Apologies if this message is mis-placed. However I think it is related.

I have a Windows XP and a Linux Redhat 8 box connected to a private LAN. The Windows box is connected to Broadband and I would like to use the same connection for Mozilla.

So far I can Ping and Ftp quite happily in both directions but Mozilla can't pick up external web sites, although it can see my Windows localhost web page.

Most forums mention Firewalls but this makes no difference. I am not using a proxy.

Can anyone help?

Cheers,
Lee B.

Question inverted roles

Here is my doubt, I´ve seen the problem approached in that tutorial, but what if I connect the internet in 'Jerry' machine (using only winXP, for example) and also have the printer in 'Jerry', and intend to use 'Tom' (with slackware, for example) to connect Jerry so I can use the internet connection from 'Tom'? How do I do that?
